DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS AND EDUCATION REPORT



A. DNR Inspection Report ATTACHMENT # 1



The Iowa DNR inspected the facility on May 24th. A notice of violation was issued for daily cover as much of the lower part of the E-1 cell did not have sufficient cover. The letter also reminded of the need to meet intermediate cover requirements for Phase 0 and 1 cells. Progress Contracts has added soil to area. Work is continuing. Swan: soil washed and we needed to recover it. Work is still in process.



B. Budget for Fiscal Year 2019 Committee Discussion - – I am preparing the FY 2019 budget for approval. Do we want to have a committee meet ahead of time to review the budget or should I just present it to the entire board first? DeWitt suggested small committee look at it first. Camanche, Low Moor, and Delmar will serve on small committee.



C. Education:

i. EnviroKids Follow-up – More than 60 children and adults toured CCASWA on June 2nd for Enviro Kids. Feedback was very positive.

ii. Clinton Parks & Rec Adventure Zone Tours – Three groups from the Adventure Zone will tour the facility the last week in June.



D. Independence Day Closure – CCASWA will be closed on Wednesday, July 4th for Independence Day.



ENGINEER SITE REPORT – Kevin Jensen of Barker Lemar Engineering – Things are moving along. Responded to DNR on the West Site. Seward: Reseeding will need to take place. Weeds have taken over after unsuccessful weed kill. Trees will be trimmed also.



LANDFILL OPERATIONS REPORT – Brock Swan of Progress Contracts – Hauling out of sediment pond. Dozer went down, but rental was used. There was no down time. Swan met with Seward and Jeff Rittmer recently. Working on transitioning. Thanked board for 14 years of work here.



COMMUNICATIONS FROM ANY AGENCY MEMBERS OR THEIR CONSTITUENTS:



DeWitt: Met recently with Republic Service officials. Brought up some questions. Republic is running a deficit with Scott County recycling. Republic is asking for information to be spread about needing clean and dry materials.



Clinton City Admin. Matt Brooke – Mixed paper has dropped dramatically. Commodities are down.



DeWitt: Ever breathing and changing process. Savings on landfill bill will be used to purchase new recycling carts.



Seward: Newspaper, plastic, and cardboard are all down in commodity pricing.



Charlotte: Need to give Republic notice on when we plan to open single stream transfer point.



Brooke talked about Coca Cola recycling grants.



UNFINISHED BUSINESS



A. Discussion and Possible Action: 28E Agreement



DeWitt: have we heard anything back from Mike Wolf?



Brooke: Wolf assisted with the wording and now it’s up to the Board of Supervisors to approve it.



Brooke: will use a general fund levy. Bill Blum of DNR indicated that money over closure/post closure obligations can be moved around to other accounts.



I did a 30 year projection with financials. Need $215 thousand per year, which equates to 0.0923 cents per thousand assessed value.



DeWitt: That’s without any changes in tipping fees? Brooke- that’s changing nothing.



Brooke: it takes 18 months for a levy to kick in.



Clinton: Levy is a constant $215 thousand. So if taxable values increase it will help.



Brooke: hopefully we can sway the legislature to change this to allow the agency to become a taxing entity.



Brooke: Clinton has increased recycling and decreased landfill tipping.



DeWitt: Verbiage needs to be written in.



DeWitt: Do we need to keep talking about increasing tipping fees in the mean time?



Clinton County: This funding would be accomplished in a new budget.



Brooke: the County is allowing this the residential portion of the amount paid by head tax to be cut in half with a levy.



Clinton: The Board of Supervisors needs to decide if they will do said levy. It’s on the shoulders of the Supervisors.



DeWitt and Camanche agree they want to keep the momentum moving on this.



Clinton County: I have no problem, but I cannot speak for the other two members of the BOS.



Clinton: it comes down to one paragraph and a Board of Supervisors decision. I’d like to see this done in the next 60 days.



Clinton: Do we want a motion to ask the BOS to vote on this?



DeWitt made motion to ask the County to vote on the 28E agreement. Low Moor seconded. Roll Call vote was taken.



Clinton – Vulich - Yes Clinton County–Determann - Yes

DeWitt – Chrones - Yes

Camanche – Varner - Yes Charlotte – Sellnau – Yes Delmar – Goodall - Yes

Goose Lake – Farrell - Yes Grand Mound – Kilburg – Yes Low Moor - Pray – Yes



Motion passes unanimously.



Clinton County expects the topic to come before the BOS either July 2nd or July 9th.



B. Single Stream Study Transfer Station Update –



Seward: Most of the time has been spent ironing out the details of the compactors. Conversations on continuing on trailer proposals. Foth wants to get the compactor approved because of the hookup to the trailer. Trailer proposal could be coming next month.



C. Recycling Compactor Proposals Memo # 1 and PROPOSALS # 1,2,& 3



Before you are three proposals for the compactor and a memo with a recommendation from Foth. Foth recommends going with the Ace Compactor.



DeWitt: Did we do any research on the hydraulic system for the Ace Compactor?



Clinton County: Did we talk to a reference on somebody who has an Ace compactor? Seward: No we did not.



Clinton made a motion to approve the purchase of the Ace Compactor, with the caveat that Seward speak with a customer who owns an Ace Compactor. Camanche seconded ($115,336.08). Roll call vote was taken.



Clinton County–Determann -Yes

DeWitt – Chrones – Yes Camanche – Varner - Yes

Charlotte – Sellnau – Yes Delmar – Goodall - Yes

Goose Lake – Farrell - Yes

Grand Mound – Kilburg – Yes Low Moor - Pray – Yes

Clinton – Vulich - Yes

NEW BUSINESS:



A. Audit Report for Fiscal Year 2017 Handed Out at Meeting



Before you is the audit report from the State Auditor. Here are some of the highlights. On page 5, we received a clean opinion, meaning that the financial statements fairly present the financial position of the agency.



Page 7 shows operating revenues decreased by 1.5%. Operating expenses were 9% less than previous year. The agency’s net position increased by 1.2%.



No instances of non-compliance were noted. This is an improvement from the previous year as there was a depository resolution issue the previous year.



The audit staff did find three instances of internal control deficiencies, starting on page 41. This is fewer than the five remarks the previous year. The accounts payable reconciliation and mileage reimbursement rate deficiencies were not identified as issues in fiscal year 2017.



Three deficiencies were identified. They included segregation of duties. Because of the small office atmosphere this is the toughest to correct and unless we were to triple office staff size, then it would be tough to get this remark to go away. Another deficiency was financial reporting. The other deficiency was related to accounts receivable. We have seen improvements.



Seward: Very easy to work with.



B. Fiscal Year 2018 Audit Proposals PROPOSALS # 4 & 5



Before you are the proposals to perform the fiscal year 2018 audit.



Clinton made motion to accept the State of Iowa bid for the fiscal year 2018 audit ($9800, plus filing fee). Goose Lake seconded. Roll call vote was taken.



DeWitt – Chrones – Yes Camanche – Varner - Yes Charlotte – Sellnau – Yes

Delmar – Goodall - Yes

Goose Lake – Farrell - Yes Grand Mound – Kilburg – Yes

Low Moor - Pray – Yes

Clinton – Vulich - Yes Clinton County – Determann-Yes



Motion passes unanimously.



C. Director of Operations and Education Evaluation - Potential Closed Session – Iowa Code § 21.5(1)(i)



Delmar: “I move that we hold a closed session as provided in section 21.5(1)(i) of the open meetings law to evaluate the professional competency of an individual whose performance is being considered to prevent needless and irreparable injury to that individual’s reputation, as that individual has requested a closed session.” Low Moor seconded. Roll call vote was taken.



Camanche – Varner - Yes Charlotte – Sellnau – Yes Delmar – Goodall - Yes

Goose Lake – Farrell - Yes Grand Mound – Kilburg – Yes Low Moor - Pray – Yes

Clinton – Vulich - Yes Clinton County –Determann -Yes

DeWitt – Chrones – Yes
